I have a 15X30 AGP. I received my Aquabot Pool Rover last Friday. So far I am very disappointed in it, but hoping I'm doing something wrong and you guys can help out.
I'm in Arizona where we have some afternoon dust storms and get a film of dirt at the bottom of the pool. The pool rover is not picking it up. When the rover passes over a section of dirt, I can't even tell it passed over the area unless I see tire tracks in the dirt at the bottom of the pool. I'm not expecting it to pick up all the dirt in a single pass, but I do expect to see a noticable difference. I ran it for 4 hours and the pool was still dirty. The center section was partially cleaned, but the ends of the pools look like they haven't been touched. After a 2 hour cycle I'd estimate the pool rover has removed maybe 20% of the dirt.
Functionally there doesn't appear to be anything wrong. The flaps at the bottom work. The pump runs and moves the rover around the bottom of the pool. The pump just doesn't appear to be creating enough suction.
The only adjustments I see are the timer. I have it set to 40 seconds which is what it takes to traverse the length of the pool (30 ft). There is also a pin that I move from side to side to prevent the cord from developing a memory
Any Suggestions? Are my expectations out of line? Anyone else have the rover and experience similar results?
